contemporary flatweave, original paintings, bold collaborative designs, soulful processes
This is the Martinez Studio in picturesque Door County, Wisconsin, home to Wence Martinez’s masterful flatweave tapestries, hand-woven on walking floor looms using hand-spun, hand-dyed wool that sings with vibrant vegetal and Swiss aniline dyes. This working studio and gallery also is home to Sandra Martinez’s wearable art and her striking paintings on paper, inspiration for the couple’s collaborative flatweave work.
Explore the unique marriage of Wence’s pattern-driven weavings and Sandra’s signature glyphs ~ and discover how each piece evokes the intimate, deeply creative environment in which it came to life. Welcome to the Martinez Studio.
Sandra and Wence will be appearing at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, MADE section, Peir 94, NYC on March 21-24, 2013. They will also be making their debut at the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington D.C. on April 24-28, 2013.
